Not a low-key class, we were so many… and the guy made the base himself for everyone at the end… not a lot of time practising…
Everybody is drinking Prosecco and champagne. It is very much a chill class, not very suitable for the ones like me who really want to learn ceramics…

Jumoke Shoderu Nov 2023

A very busy classcould have done with a little extra time. Overall a lovely fun class, and a nice introduction to pottery and wheel throwing.

Anonymised ClassBento student Nov 2023

Each stage of the class was fun, but it felt quite rushed as there was a group immediately before and after us. Also, not a lot of opportunity to drink the bottles we brought with us.

It was a nice, brief introduction to pottery.

Abdul Shamriz Oct 2023

Good amount of time, didn't feel rushed and it was a good experience. I would come again for another class.

Anonymised ClassBento student Sep 2023

Nice fun vibe - well organised but a bit rushed! Would have loved to have more time to learn how to play with the clay

Becca Painter Sep 2023

Just a really unfriendly experience - not at all what we were expecting from the description. Took ten minutes for anyone to greet us then another ten minutes waiting. Instructions were hard to follow and the instructor seemed to be managing three groups at once so had very little time. No chance to drink any BYOB. Seems like they're just trying to get as many people through as possible. Not worth the money, stay away.

Anonymised ClassBento student Sep 2023

Was a great experience, class was fast paced but informative for beginners.

Would definitely recommend.

Hanna Ramanava Sep 2023

More help during painting stage would be great. Overall, amazing experience and great help from teachers.

Anonymised ClassBento student Aug 2023

The teacher who took the pottery class itself was really excellent but after the class had ended it was unclear what we were supposed to do / where we were supposed to go to paint it and finish it. We have to wait two weeks to have the pottery glazed so I can't comment on the follow up yet.

Victoria Rizzo Aug 2023

Joss was a great teacher and made the session really light and funny. It was also really informative and looking forward to trying it some more

Shanti Kulandaivelu Aug 2023

Class was okay.
The lady who did the meet and greet was awful- seemed confused about the booking. Seated our group of 6 and then forgot to tell us the session had started downstairs- meaning we missed out on the intro and weren’t able to take part next to each other.
Session itself was okay- could have been more organised.

Elli Ottosson Jul 2023

Overpriced for what you get. Even have to pay ten pounds extra to have the pot glazed - this should be included in the price

Cheuk Lo May 2023

All the teachers were very helpful from start to finishes. I was kind of slow in EVERY step but no one ever rushes me! You will have a set time when you will be on the wheels but after that it’s creativity time and you can use clay to shape your piece or add to it. Then you can paint it and take your time! Super cool and chilled experience highly recommend for beginner like me.

Sean Wyatt-Livesley May 2023

Great little workshop. The staff were very friendly, and it was structured very well. First section was using the wheel and learning the basics. The instructor made sure everyone had something to take away. Then we went over to forming and then painting left to do what we wanted. It was a little warm downstairs, and there's only one small toilet but neither were something that annoyed me. I can understand other reviews that if it's busy then you feel rushed or unattended but that didn't happen on this occasion.

Pottery class review by Sean Wyatt-Livesley - London

Angela Pan Apr 2023

The teachers were very knowledgeable and kind. There were many students, which made the class busy, but the teachers were able to keep the class moving and help everyone with their pieces. They also encouraged creativity and assured that imperfections were what made a piece special - I really loved this

Naomi Apr 2023

The class was really exciting and fun. The teacher was so informative and attentive - we learned how to shape, lifts and add texture to our clay. It was great that we could then add colour at the end and had the option to take the finished product home or (for an additional cost) leave it to be glazed in the kiln. I can’t wait to see my finished product.

Lily Livermoore Apr 2023

Jing was amazing had so much fun, highly recommend to anyone who loves art as much as they do a drink

Shrisha Panda Apr 2023

Lovely workshop, friendly and good vibes. Spent a bit of time on the wheel but mostly reshaping it with tools and then painting! Good experience

Carmen Whitelock Mar 2023

Loved it! Great set up. Good teachers. And plenty of inspiration. The 90 mins flies by. I’m hooked. Thank you.

Pottery class review by Carmen Whitelock - London

Michael Tompkins Mar 2023

Teacher was very good and explained everything clearly, I would recommend to friends looking for a beginners class

Natalia Mar 2023

Very good teaching of pottery making, super fun activity. Will come back to do something else

Jack Thorn Mar 2023

Very good experience, with friendly instructors and a good amount of time for a beginner session. Being able to make bigger items would have been a plus.

Yvonne Yim Feb 2023

2 ClassBento workshops attended

It was very rushed factory style workshop, while the other group was in stage 2, we joined in stage 1, 3 groups per night. The place was overcrowded. I thought we’d mess around but we literally get around 5 mins hands on on the wheel, other time the instructor just did it for us. Also, I booked two spots first and the next day they told me it’s fully booked and cancelled on me. Couldn’t they just update the system?

Christiana Feb 2023

Absolutely loves the whole process. It seemed hard when they were describing what to do, but after the demonstrations, it was fine. Always on hand to help. Will be doing more so I can be perfect.

Trevor Francisca Feb 2023

very fast pace. but overall great experience to have done it once. instructions were clear and instructors were helpful.

Edouard Godin Feb 2023

Really great experience and an amazing 90 mins experience many thanks! We loved it very much

Sobia Kazmi Feb 2023

Our pottery teacher was Cathal who was great and fixed our pottery if we made any mistakes! There were 3 parts: The turn table pottery build, the enhancements, and the painting.

The venue was easy to find. All materials are provided, however there is an additional £10 charge if you want your pot glazed which we wanted.

Pottery class review by Sobia Kazmi - London

R D Jan 2023

enjoyable event, but far too many in the class - over 20 - and that again at another table
It was hard to hear the teacher and far too noisy.
It was a pity as the idea and the location is great but just not very well organised

Maliha Bhola Jan 2023

The studio was buzzing and the class was definitely fun.

Thought it was a bit bizarre that we paid £46 for the ceramics class, but were told we'd have to pay an extra £10 if we wanted to have our piece properly baked and glazed for pick up in 2 weeks. It should've been included in the price of the class and it turned out to be much more expensive than we had budgeted for.

Our instructor also left mid-way so we didn't get a lot of direction once we were off the wheel.

Hannah Galloway Jan 2023

The venue was really easy to find and a nice big space for the class. The instructor for the pot throwing was really helpful and funny, I really enjoyed his style.
Overall it was a really fun date night!

Ceramics Workshop review by Hannah Galloway - London

Michael Leung Jan 2023

Bit rushed and classes were too big I feel. Didn't get enough time on the wheel and shaping the clay.

Belen Bittini Jan 2023

Fun concept, fun activity. Perhaps slightly crowded so everything feels rushed. Maybe because it was a weekend the staff were feeling tired but it wasn’t a very friendly environment. As I said the class it’s fun, but very rushed, for a lot of people and teachers won’t spend much time helping you

Camille Daeninck Jan 2023

The class itself seemed quite rushed, and the session had so many people that there was not enough space to personalize our piece without bumping into each other. I was also under the impression that firing was included in the cost of the class. If this additional cost could be emphasized upon signing up, it would be greatly appreciated.

George Wells Jan 2023

We had a nice time and it was good fun. We did feel like a bit of a battery chicken rather than individuals and it would've been nice to have a bit more ownership of the pots made

Clare Sterland Jan 2023

Really friendly host who explained exactly what we needed to do at each stage. A very relaxed evening and a nice piece of pottery produced.

Ash M Jan 2023

Great class. Nice and fun and well taught too. Would recommend especially for friends or dates.

Renée Gordon Dec 2022

Had a lovely time, was a great Christmas gift experience for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it. The teachers were really friendly, helpful and encouraging. It was really good fun as well as relaxing. considering the materials provided, the paints and the teaching, it’s all great value for money compared to other places I’ve looked into before in London. The studio is also very beautiful and welcoming. Lovely stuffs :)

Roberto Minghi Dec 2022

Thank you so much for the lovely expirence! It was a very cute and meditative date.

Charukie Dharmaratne Dec 2022

A fun date night mess about if you want to have a wine and a giggle but would not recommend if you are serious about wanting to learn pottery.

Zoe Risbridger-Smith Dec 2022

Really fun day out, really great instructor and amazing value for money !

Thank you so much !

Ceramics Workshop review by Zoe Risbridger-Smith - London

Clare Kavanagh Dec 2022

The class was really enjoyable, great activity to do as a couple and for people who have never done pottery before

Katie Zgorska Dec 2022

The teacher was lovely, but the whole experience was rushed and you didn’t get much knowledge on wheel throwing

Ester Diz Nov 2022

The class itself was amazing but when you sign up for it, nobody tells you that you will need to pay an extra 10 pounds if you want to take it home glazed. Also it is a bit confusing the idea of “enjoy a drink of your taste”, most of us we thought we will be provided with a drink and not that we need to bring it ourselves, what it disapointed us all.

Liam Johnson Nov 2022

Great fun and very well instructed. Loved it and we were able to get stuck in which was great fun

Jamie Bryant Nov 2022

Helpful teacher and kind staff! Recommend to anyone who wants to experience something different and creative.

We had so much fun at this workshop and come out with some lovely pots and some basic skills learnt too. The teacher was brilliant and it was a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

David Akinwunmi Oct 2022

Class was great, staff were informative and helpful when things when a little bit wrong! It was a really good vibe!

Christine Higgins Oct 2022

Really great and informative with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great place to meet people.

Ceramics Workshop review by Christine Higgins - London

Alizee Tran Oct 2022

Teacher was great fun and experienced. Laughs and relaxation at the same time. Perfect for a work event.

Jessica Dalrymple-Sobers Sep 2022

The staff were very friendly over all. Cathal the instructor was very polite and patient, Hannah was also very polite. It was a great experience that we both really enjoyed, particularly the clay moulding itself. The whole thing was very therapeutic and reminded us how about the importance of creating! Thank you team!

Nicholas Halliday Sep 2022

Absolutely amazing! Both teachers were lovely and very helpful. It would have been nicer if sessions were a little longer but for a little teaser session it’s perfect to see if pottering is something you’d like to try again.

Ceramics Workshop review by Nicholas Halliday - London

Paula Russell Aug 2022

Nice helpful teachers, class size quite big which means you don't get much done in the time period. Good experience but expensive for what you get.

Remaya Adams Aug 2022

Was a lot of fun, all I could say is if you have a decent shape you are told to stop which I understand because everyone would be there forever with there own shapes but it would have been nice to have something a little different to others, then again it was the beginners one so maybe I just wanted to do more then what I bargained for, but is a brilliant place, definitely recommend as a date night.

Lydia Yohannes Aug 2022

It was a fun pottery class! Our teacher was very Skilled and informative! We learnt a lot!
Enjoyed it and recommend it!

Megan Long Aug 2022

Great time, the tutor was really enthusiastic and funny! Went with my boyfriend and he also enjoyed it :)

Rita Cereskiene Aug 2022

The experience was excellent! We had a lot of fun creating our pottery however we did feel a bit rushed as the teacher did most of the making when some of us were making mistakes instead of showing us how to fix it ourselves. I did like that we we're free to make whatever thing we wanted instead of having to make a replica of something.

Jihan Mazouzi Aug 2022

I don't think it was worth the money since it was crowded and you could barely hear or follow what the teacher was saying.

Besides, I have asked several times how to dry it and the right hold for safety understanding and he completely ignored my question.

Little attention and not much space for creativity.

Simon Burton Aug 2022

This is a great class as a fun intro into pottery. The teachers are super talented and able to clearly explain each step and help everyone move from a lump of clay to a beautiful little piece (even when you're a few glasses of wine in!)

I'd highly reccomend this class

Susan Horton Aug 2022

Just great fun, and we met some other lovely people in the class too!
Our teacher was great - friendly, cheerful and helpful. Such a lovely evening!

Katy O'Donnell Aug 2022

The pottery class was great and although short, you got to give different techniques a go such as pottery wheel throwing and spinning, using a blowtorch to painting your creation.

Lulu Nathan Aug 2022

Really good lesson, got quite a bit of freedom to choose the shape and add-ons but we could only make a small mug, instead of whatever we wanted but really good lesson!

China Jordan Aug 2022

Really fun, it went way too quick! The teacher was great and made sure everyone made something decent. Would of been nice to have a tad more clay :)

Ceramics Workshop review by China Jordan - London

Ella Bright Aug 2022

Really great class! And fun to get a taster at ceramics.

You’re provided with everything you need to create a little dish to take home after it’s glazed. Nice little memory and good for a different activity to do!

Silvia Aug 2022

Teacher was very knowledgeable/skilled but also kind and good at engaging us

Lindy Mo Jul 2022

It was really fun! We enjoyed it very much. Definitely coming back with some other friends and colleagues. But would love to have had experienced a bit more. Lesson was too short

Nathalie Davies Jul 2022

Teacher was friendly, however, we were meant to be taught about slab building and coil building, but we're only shown wheel throwing. Group was way too big for any proper tuition. We were given tiny bit of clay, and told to start with upright cylinder shape, so not many options of what to make after that. Also, all useful tools for shaping were upstairs in painting area rather than in pottery wheel area. Painting area was too messy and no proper explanation of decorating given. I was expecting something much more organised with more options to be creative. Bit disappointing.

Shanth Rubasivam Jul 2022

I really enjoyed myself there, it was fun and the teachers are really good at teaching.

Richard Evans Jul 2022

Very good. Greet team. Really enjoyed it! Some reviews said that it was hands off, but we found that the team were very helpful and attentive and always offered to help. They let us do our own thing in between which allowed us to enjoy each other’s company.

Greg Williams Jul 2022

Really great experience, I would recommend it! Excited to see how my creation turns out.

Lamisha Rana Jul 2022

Had a fantastic experience. Lots of fun getting hands messy and being creative.
The teacher was very helpful when I was struggling to shape my clay as I wished to.

Maria Jun 2022

We had a great time. It was a birthday present and we enjoyed it. Worthy to try it

Amber Sorrell Jun 2022

Class was great but there seemed to have been some miscommunication between ClassBento and Token Studio as we were booked in for 6.30 but Token Studio expected us for 6pm - but they accomodated us anyway!

Lillian Rie Jun 2022

Great teachers and a lovely fun day out! We were taught everything step by step in a fun and relaxing way. Thanks

Mariam Shadanlou Jun 2022

Great class, we had a lot of fun and they let us stay a little longer than we were meant to do we could finish off.

Christina Ahn Jun 2022

-Fun pottery wheel!
-Separate charge for baking which feels a bit much on top of the price. Understand separate glazing cost but baking as well seems a bit much.

Tendai Moyo Jun 2022

Wasn’t much teaching. More often than not was given clay, tools and told to get on with it.

Charles Ogunruku Jun 2022

It was simple to follow, the teacher help us every step of the way, overall lovely class

Tomi Ojo Jun 2022

I had a great time with my bestfriend who booked this for me as a birthday treat! Will keep my review straight to the point :)

- A fun activity to do for newbies, we personally had a great group and our instructor was very thorough and took his time with us all. I ended up with a cute little pot at the end of the spinning wheel portion of the session.
- I enjoyed being creative after our pots were made. We got to sculpt and paint our points which was nice to sit down, chat and do.

- EXPENSIVE. You can easily go elsewhere and do the same session much cheaper.
- They DO NOT tell you that to keep your pots you either pay £5 for a brown paper bag to take it away on the day (which can easily ruin your pot as it's still drying and will get squished in transit) or you pay £10 for glazing which you roughly have to pick up within 2-4 weeks time. Furious that this is not included. It's either these two options or you opt to leave your pot at the venue to be destroyed at a later date (or sold who knows!).

Overall, I hope people read the reviews before buying these tickets. I luckily had a good experience and was able to collect my pots unlike others did (when our our pots were collected, they had told someone who also was collecting their pots that it exploded in the Kiln. They didn't offer them their money back - crazy!).

Probably won't be going back, but at least I've ticked this off my list!

Heejun Han Jun 2022

It was quite a big class but all the instructors were super helpful and fun to learn from!

Ajay Thomas Jun 2022

The class is definitely a good taster session to pottery. Please do note it is another 10 pounds to glaze your work. Definitely a fun way to spend your evening especially if you go as a group

Pottery class review by Ajay Thomas - London

Emily Hodgkin Jun 2022

A really fun experience for a birthday. The instructor was helpful and the facilities were great.

Emma Baudet May 2022

The workshop was really nice, all the steps are well explained, the studio is pleasant, 100% recommended!

Amanda Leow May 2022

Highly would not recommend for first timers. I’ve put mine in pointers so it’s easier to glance through.

Quite expensive:
• paid £76** for two
• £10 for glazing EACH

Class was rushed:
• Class was big around 16 people
• Getting the class ready took 20 mins (getting apron, getting to place) bear in mind it was a big class + instructor wasn't really present so everyone was just standing around
• Instructor started late, 10 mins basic rules and explanation
• Spent 10 mins distributing clay
(which I felt quite a waste of time, if they could have prep earlier)
• The clay spinning part was actually fun
• Total wheel time was 50 mins**

Not much time for creativity:
• Told to make a basic shape
• Told us that we will have the time to fix it in the second half of the class
• Given 15 mins for second half of the class
• Colour paint was diluted (said to not worry, colours will come out brighter when glazed)
• we were just left on our own to finish up

Collecting our artwork:
• Our artwork came out ugly and CHIPPED.
• Colours were DULL,
• Some parts smooth and shiny, other parts felt like dusty clay.
• Connecting parts were cracked lol.
( Felt that this could be prevented if the instructor could advise and guided us on the second part of the class, which we were just left on our own to finish up. )

Sadly, not the experience I was looking for as a first timer.

Should have checked their google review before visiting! If you check out other's review, the part about collecting the artwork was a hassle. While I felt it wasn't optimised, just wanted to review on the class itself! Good luck.

Victoria Adama-Agbo May 2022

It was a really good experience, the service was amamzing and everyone was really nice

Tara Bartnik May 2022

Really fun night learning how to throw and paint pottery - teacher was helpful and patient :)

Alexander Martin May 2022

The class was brilliant. From when we walked in, we felt really welcome and put my partner's nervousness at ease. The teacher was really informative, feeling like you had time with him 1 on 1 in addition to teaching the whole class. I was really inspired and would definitely go along again to another of his classes!

Ceramics Workshop review by Alexander Martin - London

Anthony Caton May 2022

Upon arriving at Token Studio, we received a luke-warm greeting and were asked to go downstairs where we met other individuals who were waiting and unsure of when things would happen next.

10 minutes later, a man (who we later found out was delivering the pottery session) muttered something down the steps towards the group, nobody understood what he said, and we got the impression that he either didn’t want to be there, or, he really couldn’t be bothered. As it was approaching 10am, maybe it was his way of signalling the class was about to start.

2 minutes later we were asked to put on some aprons and then find a throwing machine which the group did.

Once we were all were positioned around the machines the same man who muttered at the groups came and began to address the group, directing his voice towards the slab of clay he had brought, rather than looking at the group and addressing the U shaped formation of around 12 people. It was hard to understand what he was trying to say as my partner (who I brought along as a birthday present) is hard of hearing. The man continued to talk into the slab of clay, and we thought maybe he didn’t want to be there.

As the man tried to explain how we use the machines to manipulate the clay, my partner asked if he could speak up as she was hard of hearing, the man said”he’d do his best” but did nothing Meaning she missed out on the lacklustre “Direction”.

As the class went on, rather than let us get used to the feel of the clay and get into the activity, the man came around did most of the shape forming for us, rendering the activity pointless.

If your main objective was to get your hands dirty then you would have achieved that, if it was to learn something that day, you would have been disappointed.

There was no clear “this is what we will be doing next” or anything like that, just mutterings of, we’re going upstairs (again, all directed towards the group). I heard a member of the group say that “we must be painting our creations next”.

As we sat at the tables next to the paints, the man said that if we wanted to take the pieces home, it would cost £10 to blast them in the oven and for postage, but by this time we had t been able to create anything substantial and he had the audacity to asks us if we wanted to take the clay home?

Ten minutes passed since then, there was no announcement that the session was over, so I asked “Is the session over” he said yes and that was it. On the way out he didn’t even say goodbye.

This experience wasn’t fun or constructive in anyway unfortunately, and as customers we were not made to feel valued or at the bare minimum, welcomed.

Serena May 2022

We were really looking forward to this class and it started off well. When we arrived we were told we would be painting an item before moving on to the pottery wheel which was enjoyable. However, when we went to the pottery wheel section of the event it felt very rushed and unclear. There is only one teacher for about 20 people and you really don’t spend much time on the wheel. The reason this review is ‘ok’ rather than ‘good’ is because of the hidden costs. We were told there would be an additional fee of £10 to get our pieces glazed at the end of the session. This seemed very sneaky and should have been mentioned upfront! We wouldn’t return to this workshop.

Natasha Takhar May 2022

Had a fab day with my mum. Make sure you wear something light on the day, the studio gets quite hot. Venue is a bit tricky to find so go by the instruction in the email, not address on Google maps. Highly recommend!

Kayla Miles Apr 2022

the pottery class was very fun and interactive, i loved that we just got stuck in more or less within a short intro. defo would do again a lot of laughs.

Fabianne Anderberg Apr 2022

Great class lots of info for basic throwing techniques. The teacher was really fun and communicated well. Really good venue with everything you need.

Linnah Wang Apr 2022

5 star class. Great teacher. Really patient. So much fun. Would recommend. Keep up the good work.

Tracy Richards Apr 2022

Jack Stevenson Apr 2022

Really enjoyed the class, had a really nice group and the teaching was great. They have all the right tools and techniques all whilst having a good time. Really appreciate it and I know my partner did on her birthday as well. Thank you. Only point I would add, is I wish we had more time for the design work at the end, however I do appreciate that was more due to our ability than anything else.

Fiona Apr 2022

The class was a Christmas present from my children and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Aside from the fun we had it was really well organised. The teacher was patient and explained things thoroughly. Can’t wait to do it again!

Overall our experience was great! So was the teacher & we had great fun… would recommend

Aaliyah Ismail Apr 2022

Good explanation about the throwing process and was there to help when things went wrong.

Noa Marks Mar 2022

Very good lesson. Had great fun and enjoyed having a very hands on experience. Would definitely recommend.

Karine Rodrigues Mar 2022

The class was great, perhaps a bit more time would be ideal especially for beginners

Laura Previtali Mar 2022

He knew what he was talking about and he helped everyone creating something, managing the lot of us (I think the class was around 15 people?) with a steady hand.
I would've liked more time to work on my piece thought, both on the wheel and on the refining part. Adding an half an hour to the class would have made this great.
All in all, this a great place to start your ceramic journey and I highly recommend Token Studio :)

Eirian Lewis Mar 2022

Very enjoyable. Tutor helpful, explained the techniques well - and helped out when our efforts didn't go to plan.

Harriet Blake Mar 2022

Class was a good taster session to see if you'd like to try out pottery in the future, but was obviously quite rushed. Seemed to get some contradictory information on what to do -- we'd follow his instructions and then he'd come over and 'fix' the shape using a completely different technique. I do also feel that for the prize, firing could have been included. It's essentially almost £40 to make a very delicate pot, and then an extra £10 to actually make it secure enough to use. And as drinks aren't included, it actually ends up being a very expensive hour and a half

We had a great time. A unique and fun experience with a great vibe. Definitely take a drink with you and don’t take it too seriously.

Lucas Parkins Mar 2022

Whilst a fun idea, the night came off very much as a poorly executed one. Our teacher was short and abrasive, and had very little time for any given member of the class, and then the allegedly included glazing and kiln firing turned out to cost an extra £10 on the reasonably strong ticket price. Fun, but im sure there are others offering a fuller experience.

Joanna Ma Mar 2022

Really lovely class although felt a little rushed due to it being the last slot of the day (8-9.30).

Would’ve loved a bit more time on the wheel but otherwise great intro and also nice to be able to pick up and recycle old pottery left behind - environmental and nice to bring back something which was better than my own creation!

Very fun! Class was large but managed efficiently and effectively - I felt supported. I was a complete beginner and still managed to make something and have a blast. Would highly recommend!

Stephen Salem Mar 2022

Great teacher and very helpful! Good at explaining what to do and assisting to get it right!

Esha Chandel Feb 2022

I did enjoy the class, however would have liked more on the wheel as the painting and shaping part of the activity was less fun.

Myself and my partner both had a fun time at ceramics workshop, it’s a good date night idea. They run through the class very quickly so I would recommend getting there early

Lucy Hughes Feb 2022

Remember to bring glasses for your drink

Luke Nakatani Feb 2022

Went here on a date night, brought a bottle of wine and an open mind, it was awesome! Instructor was super helpful, they had everything you needed like an apron, materials, tools etc,. Just show up and have a good time. Good value for money and great date idea, highly recommend it!

Amber Stewart Jan 2022

Excellent worksop, the instructor was very clear and great fun, would love to come back.

James Forsyth Jan 2022

really fun atmosphere and lesson. would have loved more time on the wheel but overall a great hour making and decorating with all materials provided.

Ceramics Workshop review by James Forsyth - London

Eve Jan 2022

A lovely and relaxed place. Great teachers who help lots but also make you feel like the pot you make is uniquely yours.

Giedrė Statkevičiūtė Jan 2022

I thought the class was very big, so there wasn't too much individual time to learn, but as a taster session, it was good. It would have been nice if you didn't need to pay extra for the piece you made if you wanted to carry it home in a few weeks.

Juliette Henry Jan 2022

Really fun and engaging! Had a wonderful time! Also was very helpful and supportive but also encouraged independence.

Leily Kassai Dec 2021

Loved it! So much fun and I’d love to bring my friends along next time ❤️

Angelica-Veronica Amarande Dec 2021

Above any expectations!
Good lesson, good location, plenty of pottery wheels, surprising large number of atendees.

Nitharshi Nagarajah Dec 2021

The teacher was very supportive and helpful. The venue was appropriate for the class and the display of previous work was useful inspiration for decorating our creation.

Lydia Crump Nov 2021

A great beginners class that was very fun and lighthearted! The teacher was funny, engaging and very helpful when we inevitably made a mess as it was our first ever go at pottery. The class was full (probably about 20 people - a mixture of couples and friendship groups) and it was a good atmosphere as everyone was having a laugh. We spent about half the time given on the potters wheel then the rest decorating our creations. There were lots of examples to inspire you and you could decorate your pots using glazes, engraving tools, and additional clay for handles etc. I felt like we had plenty of time for the activities and it wasn’t rushed at all. The location was about a 15 minute walk from London Bridge station and easy to find. I would definitely do this workshop again as my boyfriend and I really enjoyed it! Thanks for a brilliant session :)

Excellent workshop. Fun and practical with supportive tutor who guided us through the wheel and painting process

Saskia Nicholls Nov 2021

Enthusiastic teacher who took us swiftly through the throwing process. Would've like more time on the wheel but learnt a lot in a short period! Very enjoyable and would do again.

Charlie Waumsley Nov 2021

Really enjoyed this class, was really fun for the 2 of us! would recommend for something different to try!

[Please also check and trust the numerous negative reviews they got on Maps!].

The staff we met at the Studio was friendly and helpful, the workshop was fun BUT then, we met the two thieves running the Studio, Joseph Spriggs (who calls himself a musician on LinkedIn, check it out) and Jing Xue.

I also added a review on Maps with snapshots and photos proving they insulted us, blackmailed us and tried to extort money from us. I'm also filing a complaint with the Metropolitan Police, and submitting a report with Trading Standards to trigger an investigation.

We (my partner and I) attended the Ceramics Workshop on September 11th (Saturday). Right after, we paid extra money (we have the receipt) to have our pots glazed and to be able to pick them up three weeks later. We ended up receiving a pick-up confirmation email telling us to come pick-up the pots any day after October 18th (more than one month after the Workshop, not three weeks as advertised on the website). We called the Studio to pick the pots up on Saturday, October 23rd, but they refused over and over again while we tried to insist. They told us that the room where the potteries are stored was locked and that they didn't have the key. Now, you have to know we came to the Studio two weeks before the call to enquire about the pots, and the person we spoke with told us that we had to wait for the confirmation email. He said he could go to the storage room (which was not locked AT ALL!) but that the pots were not made ready on the right shelf to be found quickly, and that it would take too much time to look for them. We said we understood and that we would come back after we received the confirmation email.

After I finished my call with the person at the Studio, who told me that we could come next Saturday if we sent an email ahead, I did send an email and added a comment stating we didn't appreciate to have to wait that long to pick-up our pots, and that it wasn't right to refuse to give them to us on the 23rd, like we asked. The emails that followed from hysterical Jos and Jing were filled with insults, offensive comments and exclamation points. They said that we should apologise (For what exactly? For making a complaint?) if we wanted to be able to pick-up the pots next Saturday, or we could only come on weekdays. We already explained that both my partner and I were working on weekdays and that it wouldn't be possible to come during weekdays, but they kept insulting us in the emails and wouldn't hear it.

I then replied that we would come on Saturday, as agreed with the person we spoke with, since the instructions in the pick-up confirmation email indicated it was possible. But they went ahead with FORBIDDING us to come get our pots on Saturday. We tried to reason with them by explaining that we already paid for the pots, so they have no choice but to give them since they already accepted money for them. But they kept threatening us and refusing to give us the potteries. In one email, they wrote "Don't bother coming! We will throw your pots out!".

After I insisted that coming on a Saturday was the only way for us, they replied that they will throw our pots out in a brown bag in front of the studio, on the ground at 3pm today (October 25th), and that we had to arrange a pick-up at that time. They also tried to extort money from us by saying that if we wanted them to keep them in storage it would cost us 20£ per day! If they go ahead with this latest threat, I warned them that I would lodge a formal complaint with the nearest police station. I hope they will be reasonable and give us the pots we already paid for, this Saturday (October 30th).

More information in this Twitter thread (https://twitter.com/kaylyn_noble/status/1452625477638709251?s=20), feel free to add your own experience under.

They just threw my pots out of the studio in a brown bag and sent an email admitting to it (please see snapshot of the email). I'm filing a complaint with the Metropolitan Police and will claim a refund for this. THIS IS HOW YOU WILL BE TREATED IF YOU GO TO THIS STUDIO. Check the other negative reviews!

My theory is that they take clients' money to glaze the pots, and then they find a way to refuse to give the pots once glazed. On their website, you can see that they charge the pots "left behind" (they mean stolen), 3£ for each pot they stole, and pretend they're going to "donate" it to a charity if you pay the price advertised. That's a fraudulent scheme and I would advise you distance yourself from these crooks before their unlawful activities reach you.

Really great introduction to throwing on the wheel, which I've never done before! There were quite a lot of us in the class and the teacher was great at trying to help everyone.
Loved the quirky venue and really enjoyed trying something a bit different.

Ceramics Workshop review by Gemma Nolan - London

Alex Bambolino Oct 2021

It was a great experience to learn how to make the ceramics and and then being able to shape and colour it.
Oy down would be the class had a large amount of people in a very tight space. Felt a uncomfortable in times of Covid and little time for questions.

Aisha Dad Sep 2021

We went to this class as an activity for my sisters birthday. It was was really good value for money, the teacher was great and very patient with us all. I would highly recommend booking a class!

Pottery class review by Aisha Dad - London

Tazmin Mirza Sep 2021

The teacher was great, loved the energy and guidance! Only thing was it was a little hard to hear instructions when downstairs, as the music was quite loud and people were chatting. I also thought there might be some more spacing between the wheels for social distancing, but understand if that isn’t required anymore.

Georgina Greenspan Sep 2021

My friend and I did this class and utterly enjoyed it - it was a great venue, lots of interaction and we both came away having learnt something new. Would definitely recommend!

Matthew Adkin Sep 2021

Great instruction really encouraging would highly recommend him would love him to do variations off different pottery styles and more intermediate pottery

Grace Horvath-Franco Sep 2021

The class was a lot of fun and well worth it. Looking forward to collecting my finished piece!

Jack Major Sep 2021

Really good fun, engaging, and the teacher gave just enough guidance to make sure you had some something worth keeping at the end! Will recommend

Zoe Newton Sep 2021

Lovely venue, and a brilliant teacher sharing both her great experience in pottery throwing and a multitude of laughs. Can't wait to come back and pick up my pot soon and see the final product after being in the kiln!

Communication was okay.
Interaction could be improved upon.
Impacting of course wasn’t inspiring enough.
Not sure whether I gained my money’s worth but at least I got the opportunity to see how it works.
And I’ll look forward to a more intense course.
Thank you.

Lucia Bon Aug 2021

Such a fun class and the teacher was super helpful. Highly recommended for anyone looking to try pottery for thhe first time!

Megan Golding Aug 2021

Fantastic class, you get to make your own pottery then decorate and paint it with a ton of creative freedom!

The teacher was good humoured and super helpful, teaching you the methods but also being there to help out if your clay went incredibly wayward.

Looking forward to getting our pottery back!
